Never Say Never

I'm turning right into my mother,
I'm starting to lose my mind.
I called Maxwell 'David' as Meggan sat waiting;
I ran to get things left behind.

I went to the store needing Softsoap,

But it didn't get put on my list.
I got chips and more ketchup I knew I would need,
But had multiples of on my shelf.

I had to buy foam bathtub cleaner.

I grabbed the same can that I knew
Was the same kind I'd purchased for year after year
But it's apple green scented, not blue.

So I'm off to make bathtubs smell fruity

As I call out my children's wrong names.
I hope to find something to wash off my hands with
Since motherhood's made me insane!
